My computer's operating system is Windows 11 Professional, and I have the following problems when I log in to my Microsoft account and use RDP

  1. When I first logged in to my Microsoft account after installing the operating system, the password synchronization took too long, causing me to wait more than a week to successfully log in to the remote desktop, otherwise it would say "Your credentials are not working"
  2. When I log in with Microsoft account, if I want to use Remote Desktop, I can't open the passwordless feature of Microsoft account, and I suggest to add the exclusive application password for RDP (that is, this password can only be used for RDP, not for login account)
  3. When I change the password of my Microsoft account, I use RDP to connect to my computer, which still requires me to use the original password, and the new password has not been synchronized, which is a very serious security problem, and my Microsoft password has been exposed, and I have changed it immediately. However, because the password synchronization of RDP is too long, someone who knows my password after it is exposed can now connect to my computer remotely at will, which is very dangerous, and it has been almost half a month and my password still hasn't been synchronized!
    Although I know that changing the account type on the computer to ask for a local account would solve these problems, I need to log in to my Microsoft account on the computer. So I can't change it to a local account

    Today I discovered that it is actually possible to manually make him update.
    Just use your Microsoft account login password on your computer to access the system once
    Nowadays, windows will ask for a pin at the time of installation, resulting in a pin login all the time, which is what led to what I call the first login to Microsoft to wait a while before using RDP
